Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument encompasses 1.9 millions acres of sublime, yet rugged backcountry across south central Utah.

Only recently protected by Presidential decree in 1996, the Monument is home to the Paria River to the west, the Escalante River to the east, and Kaiparowits Plateau in the center. One of the very few roads granting access to the Monument, Scenic Route 12 offers multicolored vistas of incredible landscapes throughout Grand Staircase.
